When did it become the norm?
To sell votes for favors……
to sell salvation for dollars…..
to degrade children
allowing them to fall through the cracks
lost and alone
while their parents are terrorized?
When did time change so much?
That morals sit in the bin
taken out with the trash?
That freedoms fought so hard for
can be torched in a moment?
When did truth become a slippery slope?
When did mans lies become legitimate facts?
When did the values, the mores I remember
that they no longer can be found?
I weep for those times passed
mourning the loss of simpler times
when the world was not threatening to shatter.
Image is via:
Standing before the gilded mirror
beaming a buffonish smile.
the image stares back.
Never hearing the critics
Never reading the pans
‘I am great.’
‘I am right.’
‘I will win the world.’
the image continues to glare.
Staring in the mirror
seeing not his narcissism
he is the new God…
one who triumphs
whilst destroying the world.
the image remains as he departs.
